Auto Glass Repair Bakersfield

Windshield Repair Process:

Start by making sure the area is completely free of any debris or dirt. The next step is to check to see if there is any lose glass in the break. If these conditions are right we often will drill a small hole or incision with a diamond tip drill bit. We then will remove all the glass dust this has created. At this point we place our resin injector stand to the glass and over the hole.

We now will insert the resin injector and repair resin. Only the highest quality resin is used to assure the best windshield repair and no yellowing later. This is best left to a professionals because the windshield can crack out at this point if the pressure you use is too high and/or the crack edge is too weak to handle the pressure. Once the resin is properly injected in the hole or crack, we remove the stand and cover the hole with a sheet of plastic. The resin is now allowed to cure.

Once the windshield has cured the area is then cleaned of excess resin and the glass cleaned for you. In some cases you can still find the area of the damage but, the improvements to the looks are unquestionably better. The crack or chip is usually very difficult to find when completely filled. The vehicle can be driven or washed right away with a proper windshield repair.
